Ferris State University hockey, soccer, and basketball players in action

Ferris State University has had partnerships and a presence in Grand Rapids for more than 30 years. This year, the Growing Opportunity event will showcase partnerships, programs and alumni from the Grand Rapids community in a casual and engaging format. Kicking off this new format in 2023, we will focus on a specific area of Ferris and highlight its impact on students and our broader community.

This year, the focus will be athletics and its impact on students. Attendees at this reception-style event will have an opportunity to engage in various activities and games, meet students and coaches, and network with other supporters.

Proceeds from this event are matched 1:1 and support the West Michigan Opportunity Scholarship Fund at Ferris State University. This Fund benefits students from the West Michigan area who enroll at Ferris in Big Rapids, Grand Rapids, or at Kendall College of Art and Design.
